How do you make sure you recommend the best options to your clients?
"When I'm looking for the best investment opportunities and protection products for my clients, I tap into extensive independent research by HSBC's research teams in key markets across the world - from the US and UK to Latin America and Asia.
"The research team's job is to monitor more than 10,000 funds - and use detailed analysis of their performance, charges and administration to create the investment selection available through our Worldwide Funds Service. Any funds that fall short are filtered out, leaving a shortlist of funds that are all there on merit - chosen for their quality, strength and suitability.
"Because the selection process is carried out by independent teams who look at the whole marketplace, our shortlist includes funds from a wide range of providers - not just HSBC.
"The solutions I recommend to my clients are impartial too. I don't have to lead with our own products, so I can do what's right for each individual. This means there's no product bias in any of my recommendations, but they all come with the HSBC seal of approval."
